The Tale of the Tea Thief

Monday, September 17
6:30 PM


Scottish botanist Robert Fortune accepted a dangerous mission in 1848: infiltrate the Chinese tea industry and steal its secrets for Britain. In an area forbidden to foreigners, Fortune went undercover as a rich man from a distant part of China complete with a plausible disguise and backstory. Join Sarah Rose, author of For All the Tea in China: How England Stole the World's Favorite Drink and Changed History, as she shares this incredible tale of 19th century corporate espionage. Key to the tea trade was the difference between green and black teas; to give you a taste for the secrets once at stake, you'll enjoy both types of tea from Elise Scott, owner of Pearl Fine Teas 4 time runner-up for Best Tea Shop in DC. The book will be available for sale and signing. Pearl Fine Teas will also be for sale.
